Still Prepping: Getting More Canning Supplies Before The Trucks Stop Rolling



I thought to get a steam canner while I still could get one and that it would come in quite handy especially now with grocery prices soaring up higher and higher and with all that’s being said that the country is expected to run low on diesel within the next few weeks. The word is that trucks will not be rolling this winter making the food left on the shelves in the grocery stores very minimal and much higher in price.

So although I already have a traditional water bath canner, and I still need to purchase a pressure canner as well, for now with all this talk going on about possible water shortages, I thought purchasing an aluminum 7-quart jar capacity steam canner would be perfect. And the reason I purchased this one, in particular, is that it requires less of my time, energy (the water heats up faster so uses less gas or electricity), and much less water (80% less water) than my regular traditional water bath canner would.

In addition to that, we picked up more mason jars, extra tops, and pectin.

So this week we are planning to have fun in making a few batches of grape jelly with 100% Welch’s grape juice, also I want to try my hand at making a few jars of homemade hot sauce as well. And what I like about this canner is that it’s lightweight and faster to use. So I am looking forward to that.

What I know about the steam canner is that it is safe to use for all high-acid fruits and vegetables.

Also this week we were very lucky in that our grocery store had a sale on canned veggies which were priced at $.49 cents a can. So we stocked up and so that was so nice.







I like to call my self a happy soul, a daydreamer and have a heart of a gypsy. Love to use my imagination. And trying out new things. Life can be so wonderful and enjoyable when I am being positive and releasing.
